Tomorrow Lena, my friend, will be winging her way back to Sweden. Today, she and I went out for dinner. My husband is still too much under the weather from that awful cold to appreciate good food out, so he decided to skip it.
Before we went out to eat, I took her to Costco. Just couldn’t let her leave North America without experiencing that.
Then we went uptown again, to roam through a few more clothes stores, and have a coffee at Starbucks.
Thanks to Lena’s visit, I’ve been reminded of little, everyday occurrences. Chatty cashiers and how you get your bags packed for you in the grocery stores, for example … politeness in traffic … it’s easy to forget, and start taking these things for granted. Here, it often happens, when you’re waiting to get out in a busy intersection, that someone stops and let you out. That’s unheard of back home.
We went to a very old restaurant downtown. True to myself, I had fish ‘n chips and Lena had some grilled seafood platter. It was all good 🙂
